A beautiful puppy with outstanding breed type, GQ quickly finished his AKC Championship at 8 months old undefeated out of the BBE class. Along the short journey to his championship, GQ won 4 Group Firsts and a BEST PUPPY IN SHOW over 67 puppies entered in AKC's All-Breed Beginner Puppy Series. Three weeks later at AMCA's NY/NJ Regional Specialty Show, GQ won Grand Sweepstakes, Specialty Winners Dog and Best of Winners for back to back majors at 6 months of age and was sitting on 13 points towards his championship. Thank you Judges Mr. John Constatine, Mrs. Ruth Zimmerman and Ms. Theresa Hundt! A month later GQ showed at the 2013 AMCA National Specialty in Wisconsin where he won 2nd place in the 6-9 month Sweepstakes class and placed 3rd in Regional and National conformation. Thank you Judges Ms. Lynda Birmantas-Beam, Ms. Cindy Benson and Dr. Carmen Biattaglia for these lovely placements. Impatient to wait on GQ's Championship, we finished him with the 2 points that he needed, 2 weeks after the Nationals at 8 months of age at a local show under Judge Ms. Nancy Liebes.
Sometimes you just know when something special comes along........
Following the Nationals, we kicked off Spring of 2014 by bringing GQ back to the show ring to get his Grand Championship. He showed locally and won multiple Best of Breeds towards his title. In July, we took off for our traditional summer trek up to Waukesha, Wisconsin for the AMCA Specialty show. At still just 17 months of age, GQ won another Specialty Grand Sweepstakes, then won the Breed on Saturday's Supported entry finishing his Grand Championship with a 5 point major and went on into Group to take a Working Group 4 !! WOW! What wonderful accomplishments for a Specialty show weekendwith our young boy! We couldn't be more proud!
